Abstract

One of the basic parameter used for roundabout entry capacity calculation is follow-up headway. This parameter beyond critical headway and traffic volume on roundabout roadway major for vehicle drivers from entry determines roundabout entry capacity. The comparative analysis of models and studies on follow-up headway estimation have been presented in this article. The analysis were made for single lane, two lane and turbo roundabouts. The largest number of models and studies of follow-up headway parameter refers to single lane roundabouts. The least studies were devoted to values of follow-up headway parameter at turbo roundabouts due to the fact that this is still relatively a new type of roundabout in compare with single lane or two lane roundabouts.
